Government Reform

We the People.

Brad recognizes that the foundation of our government is the people that created it.  He supports efforts that make government more responsive and accountable to the people.

Brad supports term limits for the General Assembly and has promised to not serve more than five terms in the Illinois House.

Brad supports redistricting reform.  He is helping circulate petitions for the effort and is encouraging his volunteers to do so as well.

Ideally, Brad wants Speaker Madigan and Senate President Cullerton to put the term limit and redistricting amendments on the ballot instead of forcing advocates to engage in a long petition process and legal battle to get on the ballot.

Brad has sponsored numerous bills to expand the Freedom of Information Act and the Open Meetings Act to make local governments more accountable to the public.

    I just saw a news story where Brad is proposing that Chicago become it’s own state. I am behind this 110%, for much too long now these mega cities such as Chicago have imposed their liberal/socialist views upon the rest of the state and the conservative people who live there. Please do not just propose nonbinding referendums, get cosponsors and make it a bill! Let them know how the rest of the state feels! In the end it will be good for everyone involved.
